I was beside myself with anticipation as my colleague parked the car. Hurry up. Ciki needs feeding.
White or yellow.
I chose yellow because I like being different and found it to be just greasy rice. (similar to garlic rice but less aromatic)
So, verdict? Whilst the side dishes ranging from squid to fried gizzards to curry chicken/mutton.. etc was fantastic, the rice was a real let down.
No santan. How can?! Well, if they didn’t call it nasi lemak, I would not be as peeved as I was. How can you call it nasi lemak and omit the lemak? That’s like having s** and not… (ok, nevermind.. got young readers whom I do not want to horrify).
But anyway, horrific lemak-less nasi lemak. Apparently Alor Star nasi lemak is like that. Go figure.
Where’s my messy plate of nasi unlemak drenched in sauce, nasi kandar style.
Burp. Next time just say you are taking me for Chinese nasi kandar – that would be the right term for this meal, me thinks!
